Are Eye Cremes Just A Scam?

Myth or must? That’s what so many of our clients have asked us about eye cremes. So we decided to set the record straight!

The skin around the eye area differs vastly from the skin on the rest of your body. It is the thinnest and the most delicate, far more sensitive to pollutants, sun damage and allergens than the rest of your body.

If you’ve ever seen someone who has spent too much time in the sun, you will notice two features about them: the skin on their body is leathery and the skin around their eyes is extremely wrinkly and saggy.

That’s why taking care of this area requires more than just moisturizers. You want to keep it supple and firm with good elasticity. Eye cremes are essentially modified moisturizers, and for a very good reason. Because this area does not produce any oil, eye cremes have special emollients that are different from facial moisturizers.

These emollients soothe the area and have fewer additives than facial moisturizers because they aren’t needed. Eye cremes have also been formulated, tested and approved by ophthalmologists to be safe to use around your eyes.

Facial moisturizers do not have that stamp of approval. There is one other difference. Have you noticed reputable facial moisturizers tell you not to apply it close to the eyes?

If you’ve ever applied facial moisturizer close to your eyes, you know what happens. It stings and burns! Save yourself the irritation. Just use the appropriate product around those delicate eyes of yours!

Did You Know This Contributes To Adult Acne?

Adult acne is not only frustrating it can be highly embarrassing. It’s bad enough as a teenager, but now? We see a lot of women with this condition and we hear the same lament, “I never had acne in high school. Why do I have it now?”

 

Did You Know This Contributes To Adult Acne?

Did You Know This Contributes To Adult Acne?

Adult acne has increased in recent years, but we’ve found one common thread with our adult acne clients. Are you ready for this?

 

These clients are using the wrong products with the wrong formulation to treat their condition!

 

It’s no wonder they’re frustrated because their skin is not responding. What most people do not realize is that you have to take a step back. You must establish a cause and effect for any skin type, and that includes acne.

 

  • Is it due to a medical condition such as lupus? And if so, what’s the treatment protocol?

 

  • Is it due to stress?

 

  • Heredity?

 

A professional skin analysis with one of our highly qualified aestheticians can get to the root cause. She will discuss with you:

 

  • Your lifestyle

 

  • Any medical condition you may have

 

  • Your current skin care regimen

 

  • Your diet

 

Then she will analyze your skin       to get an objective look at what’s going on beneath the surface. This technology combined with her training will tell you precisely what your skin wants.

 

No guessing. No wrong products. No wasted money.

 

Skin simply can’t respond if it doesn’t have the right ingredients and they are loaded with cheap fillers! When you add a clinical treatment to further boost the effectiveness of your skincare products, we expect you to say, “I can’t believe how great I look!”

 

If you’ve got acne and you’re not happy with your current regimen, please consider a professional skin analysis with us. It will make a smooth difference in your world!

The New Skincare Basics You Will Love!

Don’t you just love the feel of a great moisturizer? It’s luxurious! And the right moisturizer goes a long way in making your skin look younger.

 

Now, thanks to constant research, moisturizers just got an anti-aging boost!

Cosmeceuticals such as alpha hydroxy acids, antioxidants, vitamins, retinoids, and peptides are now a vital part of basic skincare.

 

This army of anti-aging soldiers helps to counteract the effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature aging and skin cancer.

 

Vitamins such as C can effectively prevent wrinkles and age spots. However, if you’re looking for great results from over the counter vitamin C serums, you may be disappointed.

These do not work as well as professional preparations, but the best part is this. Without adding any more steps for you, these cosmeceuticals are blended right into your moisturizer.

Which one is right for you? That depends on your skin type and condition. To get the full benefit of these powerful anti-aging ingredients, come in for a complimentary skincare evaluation.

Beautiful was never so easy!

Do You Have To Be A Celebrity To Have Skin Like This?

Do you despair that only the rich and famous can have gorgeous skin?

Dear…dear…It’s time we had a talk!

 

Intense Pulsed Light therapy can make a dramatic difference in your skin and how you think of yourself. It rejuvenates, restores and smoothes out uneven skin tone, reducing or eliminating a great number of age-related problems.

 

And the down time is practically non-existent! Why? Because the light marches right past your epidermis, which is the outer layer of your skin. It then  gently heats the cells of your dermis, the deeper layer of your skin—and that’s where all the action is.

 

Once there, the different wavelengths of light go after its target like age-spots or broken capillaries. While the heat is repairing the damage it’s also giving your skin an order: Produce new collagen and connective tissue! And your skin responds. (Nobody wants to disobey an order!)

 

Extremely cost-effective, IPL is not invasive and doesn’t carry the risks of laser therapy. So c’mon! It’s time for your close up!
